Indie rapper Aesop Rock has just announced dates for his upcoming “A Night With Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson” tour, featuring Olympia based singer/songwriter Kimya Dawson.
The tour will feature a solo acoustic set by Kimya Dawson and a full set from Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz, who will perform solo material from both Aesop and Rob Sonic solo material as well as new music.
Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson are currently collaborating and will also join each other on stage to perform their new material throughout the night, as well.
Both artists’ first performance together was a free in-store in Los Angeles in January 2011. Their second show came in late February, via a sold out Noise Pop show at Great American Music Hall. Artists Jeremy Fish and Alex Paree designed the stage, assembling two 15ft walls of hand painted boxes. The artists, along with Aesop, Kimya, Rob and Wiz, threw all of the boxes to the fans at the end of the show.
Check out footage of fans going nuts over the boxes below:
